Some of the top names in crime fiction will be heading to Norwich in September for the fourth annual Noirwich Crime Writing Festival.
Val McDermid, Anthony Horowitz, Martina Cole, Mark Billingham, Arne Dahl and Stuart MacBride are the headline writers of the festival which will run from September 14 to 17.
Noirwich is a collaboration between the University of East Anglia and Writers' Centre Norwich.
Henry Sutton, co-director of the festival, and director of the Crime Fiction MA at UEA, said: 'Noirwich is a public celebration of the genre that dominates all others in the literary and film worlds. We are thrilled that the greatest talents will be here once again, in what promises to be gripping series of events.'
Chris Gribble, chief executive of Writers' Centre Norwich, added: 'Noirwich has firmly established itself on the map of UK crime writing festivals. It has increased its audience numbers significantly year on year, and if season ticket sales so far are anything to go by, this trend looks set to continue in 2017 and beyond.'
